Ify Chidi

Ify is a college freshman in Ohio – originally from the Bay Area in California – who's been involved in public health advocacy from a young age.

She has educated classmates and teachers about tobacco issues and organized activities for a tobacco prevention club that she started with a few of her closest friends.

Ify’s on a mission to make positive change in her community and beyond, and she’s prepared to boldly stand up for what she believes in. As a Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids National Youth Ambassador, Ify is expanding her tobacco prevention work and fighting for health justice for marginalized communities.

It’s very important to recognize how the tobacco industry is targeting people of color. I’m really passionate about that!
